REGINA, SK, May 11 /CNW/ - There is a new online resource for people wanting to know more about Carbon Capture and Storage technology (CCS).
Launched today, the www.ccs101.ca website is a one-stop-shop for information on CCS. At CCS101.ca visitors can access the latest knowledge on CCS in Canada and from around the world. As Canada leads global CCS development, this website aims to make information on this important suite of technologies available to everyone both domestically and internationally.
CCS101.ca was funded through the IEA GHG Weyburn - Midale CO(2) Monitoring and Storage Project and Canada's CCS Network. The project at Weyburn and Midale is the world's largest and most extensively researched CO(2) monitoring and storage project, involving researchers from around the globe. "It is important for us to look beyond the project and put forward information about this technology in a way that is accessible to people globally," said Steve Whittaker of the Petroleum Technology Research Centre, and Project Manager for the IEA GHG Weyburn - Midale CO(2) Monitoring and Storage Project.
The new CCS101.ca website has three main navigation areas: CCS Basics informs people of the technology fundamentals, while the CCS Pro area has detailed project listings, RD&D projects and funding, the Canadian CCS Technology Roadmap, and virtually all public information on CCS. The CCS Communities section features videos of people living in injection areas and seeks to show how projects are perceived by the people who actually live in areas with CCS development.
"We hope this new online portal will become one of the world's most robust websites on CCS, with links to every other online resource on the subject. CCS101.ca is excellent example of how researchers, industry and governments can work together to build better public understanding," said Dr. Frank Mourits, who initiated work on CCS101.ca as the Government of Canada's Project Integrator for the IEA GHG Weyburn-Midale CO(2) Monitoring and Storage Project.
